Wine collecting is a civilised and healthy passion. A wine collector is by nature a generous person, since he cannot possibly enjoy his wines without the compassionate company of friends, either to inspire them, or to seek their approval, or admiration. A good wine collection is more costly than the value of the wines in the cellar, because excellence can only be achieved by "elimination" . . . of the not-so-perfect bottles. This elimination process signifies: LOTS OF WINE TASTINGS. Indeed during the 1970's the various wine groups I belonged to, conducted several tastings per week, throughout a ten year period. Frank Baldock, a Toronto wine writer wrote the following article about what was then considered one of Toronto's important private wine collections.
